On May 21, Via del Mare Stadium (Lecce) will host the match of the 36th round of the Serie A, in which Lecce will compete with Spezia. The battle will start at 12:30 CET.
The team makes one more attempt not only to return to the Serie A, but also to gain a foothold there. The previous one, which was at the end of the decade, ended in relegation according to the results of the first draw. It seemed that the current coach, Marco Baroni, prepared his players better than Liverani. He had been able to win in the Serie B a year ago, and, being under his rule already at a higher level, “the Yellow and Reds” got the points in a pretty active way. Nowadays, there is an impression that “the Tigers” have relaxed too early – the disastrous segment, which started at the end of winter, brought 1 draw (in the match against crisis Sampdoria) and 7 defeats. The team was able to more or less wake up only in the last struggles. It beat unmotivated Udinese at the end of April, and, after a couple of defeats, achieved a draw in the battle with Lazio on May 12. Moreover, the team led that match in the capital of Italy by means of Oudin’s double, but Immobile transformed the score into 2-2 – the decisive goal happened in the 4th added minute of the game.
The club was able to demonstrate its maximum when it found himself on the verge of a complete failure. “The Eagles” hosted Milan (the Champions League semi-finalist and the current owner of the Scudetto) in the previous round. Frankly speaking, the team won thanks to the problems of the opponent and the difficult schedule. Ambitious guests had the advantage last Saturday, but did not score – and the end of the match stunned “the Rossoneri” with the goals scored by Wisniewski and Esposito. The higher mentioned 2-0 success allowed overcoming Verona and climbing to the 17th, “saving” place, but it is reasonable to mention that the opponents are still equal in points. It goes without saying that the victories are needed, but 5 previous rounds brought only 1 point, which was taken due to a draw with crisis Sampdoria.
The statistics of head-to-head matches
Lecce knocked out Spezia in 2021 – that was the battle in the Coppa Italia. Speaking about the January match in the Serie A, the clubs agreed with a goalless draw at the arena of Spezia.
Bookmakers believe that Lecce, which will play at the home arena, has more chances for success. Still, the result is essential for both. Thus, we bet on “total: under 2.5” (odd: 1.71).
